The Development of the Noninvasive Quantitative Brain Functional Imaging Technique

Research Project Outline

The aim of our project is to develop the new noninvasive quantitative imaging techniques of brain function and brain temperature by introducing and combining several techniques such as magnetic resonance spectroscopy, fMRI, magnetic encephalography, near infrared spectroscopy, optical tomography, and EEG. The evaluations of the absolute brain activities and the activity level of the brain at rest, which have been difficult even by using some brain functional imaging techniques such as fMRI, will be made by our new techniques, and so the new techniques are expected to bring breakthrough to the elucidation of the brain function and disease.
